A total of 92 per cent of students at the scchool in Upton gained five or more A* to C grades, with almost 90 per cent of students achieving 5 or more A* to C grades, including English and maths.
The school has said the results demonstrates a ‘significant improvement’ on the headline figure of 75 per cent in 2013.
Overall, 41 per cent of all GCSE grades were either A* or A grades.
The results were particularly strong in the core subjects, with 61 per cent of students attaining A* or A grade in English Language and maths. In combined science, 92 per cent of students were awarded with grades A* to B, and equally, 100 per cent students achieved an A* to C grade in triple science.
Headmaster, Benjamin Slade said: “I am proud of our results overall which also comprise a number of outstanding individual successes. It is gratifying that the effort and determination of our students have been rewarded. It has been a great first year
“Among the successes were Eva Bradshaw, Rachel Smith, Grace Leong, Ewan MacLeod who received all A* or A grades and Kieran Traynor who scored 12 A*/A grades, 9 of which were A* grades.”
“Whether you have academic or creative talent we believe we can get the best out of our young people; for example an amazing 86 per cent of our students taking GCSE Art have been awarded an A* or A grade and 92 per cent of students taking an additional statistics exam have attained an A* to B grade.
“These results are the perfect foundation for our students staying on for A Level study in our re-modeled sixth form in September. The Quinton Sixth Form, with enhanced facilities and a wider curriculum, will be led by maths and statistics teacher, Elizabeth Ginns, whom I have promoted to this pivotal role to raise standards further.”
